Default Garmin 188c - Anyone have one?

Looking at this unit. Anyone have one? What is your experience with them? The good, bad and the ugly.

I have one. Installed it myself. I have only used it twice. I read bottom at all speeds. I have marked stripers really well. I have not really tested the navigation all that much, but it looks impressive. I also bought the pc interface, bluechart cd and a blank data cart and it all works together. I wish the screen was a bit larger, but then again I don't have much room to mount electronics at my helm, so it is really nice and compact. Readability of the color screen is excellent. I will be putting it through its paces this season. Now if it would only hit 60 degrees for a day or two!
